A delicious side dish made by baking together onions, mushrooms, sherry, chicken stock, pearl barley and seasonings. Serve as is or a side dish with anything you fancy.
I had to make a few changes in the recipe to suit what I had at home, so ended up cooking it on the stove rather than baking it and added white port and some of the spices suggested on the other reviews (I also left the parsley on the side because I'm not a big fan). It was delicious, almost like a creamy risotto with such a rich amazing flavour. Can't wait to cook it for my friends! - 15 Nov 2015
Love this, it is a cheap tasty meal. Finished it off with grated parmigiano - 29 Mar 2014
I used red wine instead of sherry. I know it's not really a good replacement but it worked really well. Added in a few extra herbs-mixed herbs [parsley, basil, oregon] as well as paprika. Cooked for an hour. Super nice and low on the effort scale. - 26 Oct 2011
